The Link to Gut Microbes, Obesity, and Type 2 Diabetes

Gut microbes, also called gut bacteria, are found in the intestines and play a central role in several different functions in the body. Alterations in gut microbes have been associated with many diseases such as irritable bowel disease, inflammatory bowel disease, allergies, autoimmune diseases, thyroid problems and asthma.  The latest research has implicated alterations in gut microbes as a contributing factor to obesity and type 2 diabetes. Patients with type 2 diabetes and patients who are obese actually have alterations in gut microbes that increase blood sugar and calorie content.

In addition, 41% of uterine cancers were tied to obesity.

The National Cancer Institute estimates that if every adult reduced his/her weight by about 2.2#, roughly 100,000 new cases of cancer could be avoided.
